I just bought this.

and i am completely lost. it feels like i have started in the middle of a series despite this being book one of a new series.

the author also doesn't do a good job on explaining the terms. wtf are first-children, first-child, second-children, father, spidergibble, etc... there are no context to any of these terms in this book erm

i like that there is action tho...

Ouch, yes - starting with Dark Intelligence is like watching Force Awakens without having seen any of the other movies. You can do it and it is technically the beginning of a new arc, but there is a lot you will be missing out on. I suggest you start with Prador Moon or Gridlinked, both will give you a good introduction to the Polity universe. Hope you give it another try!

Catharsis by Travis Bagwell.

It's fantasy, dark magic, anime and gaming, all combined to make one of the most adrenaline-filled and enjoyable debut novels I've ever read.

Ha! No lies, he's taking his flippin time with this one. Too busy with comic books and conventions, I suppose.

But seriously, try the Travis Bagwell books I mentioned above. I loved them.

The three Blood of Kerensky books from the Battletech franchise.

Never even played the board games, but I got into buying the books as a kid (And bought the Battletech game for my old Apple IIC, which was pretty amazing considering the platform)

Haven't actually READ the books, however. Looked at a few book review sites, and one respected reviewer called the Kerensky series the best of the books, and a fine example of a "young adult series".

I got so deflated when I realized how far from young adulthood I was, I just couldn't read them without feeling guilt and shame, and felt I should be reading Gravity's Rainbow or something.. laughing out loud
